My Ugandan Adventure3
As I type, I am waiting for my 5:40pm flight to London, and then on to Entebbe Airport in Kampala, Uganda! Deb helped me check and double check all my belongings to make sure I had what I need, and I am reasonably confident - especially because I had wonderful advisors in veteran African missionaries Ed and Donna Bland, and Tim and Cheri Hoke. I am not nearly as nervous as when I took off for Ukraine almost 15 years ago, not knowing who would meet me on the other end. (and it helps that I am older, and at least have seen more, if I'm not any wiser)
I am hopeful that I will have the time, energy, and internet access to be able to give at least daily updates on what I am doing. I will be making every effort to "not waste my geography" after traveling so far from home. Please be in prayer that the Lord would give me opportunities to minister to the students of African Bible University, and to encourage the Hokes. I am also going to spend some time at the Rafiki village nearby, and to see a few missionary friends of some of you in the congregation.
I hope in some small way to encourage you about missions, and perhaps even motivate you to go on a mission trip yourself (I hear from inside sources that there are still spots open for our Summer Trip to Laredo!).
May the Lord bless you richly,
